Shu Cream (puff pastries filled with cream)
The food above is fake, it's called サンプル (sample) and you see it everywhere in front of restaurants and cafes in Japan.

So recently I've been up to interesting (read: getting drunk) things on Sundays, last weekend I went with some friends to the New York bar in the Park Hyatt Hotel to listen to some jazz (I'm so classy I can't even handle it). The hotel and the bar are used in the film Lost in Translation so it was pretty exciting to visit, plus the views were insane. Also while we were there Nicola Formichetti (Gaga's ex stylist and creative director of Diesel) walked in for dinner! He was also joined by Kiko Mizuhara who is G-Dragon from Big Bang's (Kpop band) girlfriend and a really popular model in Japan - not bad for a celeb sighting imo.
This weekend that just passed my friend and I spent some time in Kichijouji which is a up and coming 'trendy' spot in Tokyo, it has a lot of nice shops and bars and usually we go there for karaoke. We were actually searching for locations to do a photo shoot which had a kind of tacky/run down vibe to it so I got some interesting reference photos. Continuing the fun Sundays theme, I also went to a Tinder hosted rooftop party in Odaiba yesterday which was pretty interesting. It was windy as hell and they had girls in neon bikinis pole dancing on a pole which was swaying dangerously in said wind, and we were also given a lot of free vodka/gin/tequila so needless to say I didn't go to class this morning...
Let me know if you guys like these sort of Japan posts interesting! xx
